IES Abroad, a consortium of 200 major U.S. colleges and universities, will open a new study abroad program in central Istanbul, Turkey, beginning Fall 2013.
An ideal place to study in vibrant Turkey, Istanbul is the country’s most populous city and its cultural and financial center. Ninety percent of the faculty members at Sabanci University have Ph.D.s from the U.S. and most others have Ph.D.s from Western European countries. The University also has an active internship for credit program. Visit http://sabanciuniv.edu/en for more information.
While in Istanbul, students will have the opportunity to live in a student residence hall or in a homestay. Field trips to locations such as the ancient Roman city of Ephesus, Cappadocia, Troy and Ankara round out this exciting new program from IES Abroad.
“We are pleased to partner with Sabanci University, one of Turkey’s leading higher education institutions, for our new Study Turkey Program in Istanbul,” said Dr. Michael Steinberg, Executive Vice President of Academic Programs at IES Abroad. “The university’s goal to develop students who are competent and confident individuals who possess the knowledge and skills required to pursue a career anywhere in the world complements our approach to international education.”
